Is This The British Army's 'Sorting Hat'? • GURKHA SELECTION | Forces TV

July 26, 2019



if you know your Harry Potter this is the Gurkha equivalent of the sorting hat the unit representatives take their places on the square and each recruit knows exactly where he wants to go I want to be in disorder and why why do I want to be in country switches we get a chance to differ in all of the world I think is the best life for me well first you need to buy that this is going to apply for electricians plumbers eating's likewise that's why I like to go in engineers and ie nervous of its nervous Gurkha company try to give every recruit his first choice a happy soldier will do a good job but it's not always possible the man with the task of deciding the futures of 270 recruits his girth company officer commanding major Prem Guren because of the brigade needs I have to send someone in a different area than their chosen one and that's where the difficulty comes into play and then the some training teams individuals wants to send no no no this individual better suited to on that and some training teams will say no no no I want to take that in my unit none other I want to take on that my units so to manage that interest of my training team and plus the individuals sometimes it's quite difficult and sometimes I have to make hard decisions and that's life and I'm there to make that decisions you pleased it sorry Brendan yep I'm absolutely it's done and I'm pretty much here the boys are also happy as the roll call begins the recruits can only stand and wait to hear their fate one by one the recruits shoot off to their new families were welcomed into the fold if I were there I will be confused and lost and thinking that oh my god whether my name will be called on to the chosen one or not I will be in a mix of anxiety nervous big time yeah it's big day it's big day because this is where they will spend the rest of career a portion amount is very exciting and of course this is all factored into the growth brigade of Gurkhas where we've increased our recruiting will increase a little bit more and I know that the units are all really excited about the new blood that is coming their way feeling really excited and happy we are over the yeah yes it was our first choice and we are over the moon to get our first choice and you both got into the same with bedroom is that that's a good thing yes your friends yes finally when my name was Cola I was very much happy and I I ran with a lot of joy happiness so meanly Merganser combat engineer technical I get how does it feel to have that badge now it's like we're taking of one kind of big responsibility in our soldier that we have to carry we have to carry a registry of our ancestors it's very big thing to be in here thanks to the hard work of major Prem seventy seven percent this year received their first choice they'll wear their new berets proudly till the end of the day then they must pack them neatly away with still eight weeks of training to go they're not allowed back out until the very last day of their final exercise you

    I hope the The Brexit Party make it one of their polices to put the great back in the British Army. We do not need or want snowflakes in the British Army we want Gurkas.

    I told my Gurkha S,Sgt, even though they are commissioning him rather than being the first Gurkha going through the Foreman of Signals route, "Take the commission, and use it to make sure a Gurkha gets FoS".

    Gurkhas are more loyal than dogs ❤
    But they are treated like rats $€£¥
    And they still are Loyal to Britain ❤
    Good Great Strong people with Discipline and humanity 👍
    Britain is paying and giving more money and freedom to a Fake asylum seeker rather than someone who is willing to fight and give the live for it
    What a joke……
